[SOLVED] XAMPP mysql Starts then Stops

  • Trying to start MySql on Xampp on Windows 7
  • Mysql starts then stops or doesnt even start at all

Diagnosis: Mysql or a sql service may already be running on the given port, preventing mysql from starting.


  1. Open Task Manager, and go to Services
  2. Navigate to "M" 
  3. Halt all mysql, mysql55 services that are running.
  4. Now start your mysql from Xampp!!


how can you halt something that has not started on the service..because the msql option is not available in the services since it has stooped
